Eligibility: San Diego County youth dependents or wards of the court.
Program Synopsis: A youth-focused program designed to assist in transitioning smoothly from institutional residential care to the youth’s permanent home and in assisting with a successful reintegration into community.
About the Program:
A program designed to help youth participants who may struggle with the transition from the highly structured institutional residential environment that comes with being a ward or youth dependent back into society and to their respective home environments. The Wrap team works to identify the strengths in both the youth and in the family to enhance and preserve a positive environment after the transition. The team identifies and utilizes existing strengths to establish stability within the family unit and social support system to merit a court decision to end the youth’s dependency or ward status.
The program employs family-centered, strength-based practices and a culturally competent approach. The program offers the following services: assessment and intervention, individual and family counseling; case management; caregiver/parent coaching; crisis response; linking family/youth to natural and community support; and access to psychiatric support and medication.
Youth must be referred by Child Welfare Services or Probation in San Diego County. For more information, call 619-873-4075.
This program is funded through a contract with the County of San Diego.
